The Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including stronger 190 PSI steel, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands, available here.

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any of the additional color options available, or even use any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

Note: The Rogue Bar 2.0 comes standard with Black / White Silicone Bracelets, so additional Rogue Silicone Bracelets that are purchased must be replaced on the barbell manually

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 209.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret this one. I finally decided to buy a decent bar for my home gym, and decided to settle on the Rogue 2.0. I had a CAP "Beast" bar and it was serviceable but I wanted to buy one good bar. The 2.0 is way beyond good, as a matter of fact I've never lifted with a bar like it at any gym. I mostly follow the Wendler 531 program and I don't lift much over #400 on my heaviest lifts but this bar is fantastic for my needs. The spin isn't great, but the knurl is perfect in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I bought this bar for my new home gym. It arrived quickly and the packaging was solid. Knurling is in a sweet spot of grippy but not damaging to the hand. Loading bumper plates on and off has been a breeze. I haven't been able to squat with it yet, but the lack of a center knurl should be perfect for that. All in all this was the right bar to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bar Certainly good quality great feeling bar. I’m a beginner though so I can’t add much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My do anything Bar I've been using this bar for about a year now, I use it for everything but benching and squating. This bar has great knurling and collars rotate smoothly. The only minor thing is the zinc finish is starting to wear off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only new thing We finally decided to build our home gym after two years at retail gyms. We bought over 45 days off of craigslist and other used equipment locations. The ONLY thing we bought brand new were our two bars from Rogue. We spent more on them then any other piece of equipment. These are the only pieces that really matter and they are worth every cent. Once we knew to spend the majority of our budget on bars then Rogue became the obvious choice. Review after review the rogue bars won. That is for a reason. As time goes on we will expand our gym and replace (full rack vs 1/2 rack, etc.). but I know without a doubt that we have perfect bars for any workout we will ever do and these will never be sold. Another point, good luck finding used rogue bars, no one sells them (and the risk of the previous idiot damaging it) for the $50 in savings is not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck Love it. Same mechanical specs as the Ohio bar just less finish options. Spins great, knurling is perfectly grippy but not abrasive. Use it for my home gym doing Crossfit/ Weightlifting. Would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Recently received this bar to replace one I've been using for 20 years in my home gym. What a difference. The bar has an excellent feel and balance. Knurl could be a bit more aggressive but that's just a personal preference. This really is a perfect all around bar for your home gym. Really good looking bar as well. super fast delivery. Whole experience...A+.
